At the beginning of November, 15 members of the ClearStory International team flew to Web Summit 2021 held in Lisbon, Portugal. This year's event hosted over 40,000 international attendees. The annual technology conference showcases some of the world’s most innovative startups, leaders, investors and accelerators redefining the global tech industry. We were astounded by the amount of talent and motivation at the conference this year and met with some inspiring companies such as MotionLab, Drivingo, Feeder, Apres, Deepler and many more during our time there. The experience of meetings in a fast- paced and lively environment was exciting and we as a team met with journalists and companies across a variety of sectors including technology software, transport technology, marketing and artificial intelligence. ClearStory hosted an evening networking party which created a space for Web Summit participants to interact with one another, share ideas, create connections and have fun. Overall, Web Summit 2021 provided a multitude of new networking and communication opportunities and provided a professional and meaningful experience to every one of ClearStory International’s team members.
